Exploration and Emergence Institute 2003

Session 7
Evolution and the Idea of Emergence

Starting where we are ...

"God is the creator of all things"
Commission on Creation of the American Scientific Affiliation
"The theory of evolution has become the central unifying concept of biology and is a critical component of many scientific disciplines"
National Academy of Science
Write briefly in the forum area whatever thoughts/ideas/stories these two quotes trigger in your mind. (see responses and further discussion
(For further conversation see Science and Spirit)

What WERE the observations Darwin (and other biologists since him) was trying to make sense of?

What is the "story" of evolution?

; A key question: can order emerge from randomness?

For what else might the concept of evolution/emergence be useful?
